I know how much we love the Grateful Dead for all the live shows they have blessed us with, but as a teenager and right now as a middle-aged man, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's album Live Bullet is still the best commercial live album I have ever heard. What do you think?

Live Bullet is a great live album! I saw Seger open for Zappa around that time.
Other favorites: Full House by J Geils Band, Live At Leeds by The Who.
Number 1 live album of all time is Allman Brothers @ Fillmore East.

And I still like a little Double Live Gonzo - for all that Nashville Pussy... (hey, what a name for a band!)


But best commercial live album? Hard for me to vote against Little Feat's Waiting For Columbus.

Non-commercial, because he don't sell: It's Your World: Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson. Still spin that vinyl.

I agree that Live Bullet is one of the 70s great live documents, but I definately don't think it's the best live album ever by a long shot.

BTW, I make no apologies for being a boring classic rock dinosaur. Off the top of my head, my list of great non-Dead would include nothing that would surprise anyone...

Live at the Fillmore East- ABB Band
Rock of Ages- The Band
Live at Leeds- The Who
Get Yer Ya-Yas Out- The Rolling Stones
Stop Making Sense- Talking Heads
Alive!- Kiss
Bless It's Pointed Little Head- Jefferson Airplane
Live!- Bob Marley & the Wailers
Memphis to Vegas- Elvis Presley
It's Too Late to Stop Now- Van Morrison
How the West Was Won- Led Zeppelin
Stand in the Fire- Warren Zevon

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few of my other faves, but I have played all of these in their entirety within the last 12-15 months

Stand in the Fire is a great call!!

Does Jackson Brown's Running on Empty count? It was a kind of live album.

Waylon Jennings, Waylon Jennings Live Expanded version is a great one.

Lou Reed, Rock and Roll Animal

Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Live Rust

Of course the greatest ever live album has to be the Allmans "Live at the Fillmore East"

not sure I can say what THE best is. Love most of all the ones that have been mentioned. Just want to throw in these two, not because I think they are the " best" by any stretch, just two of my favorites that haven't been mentioned

Hot Tuna - first one acoustic
Hot Tuna - First Pull up then Pull down. Damn I wish I had picked up the CD before it went out of print

WOW!! i knew this was a vocal and out spoken group here, but I did not expect to stir up a hornets nest!!LOL

This turned out to be pretty cool in the long run, because it reminded me of a few live albums I had not listened to in awhile and a few I would like to find.

Still don't find it necessary to down play anyone's choices, but maybe that's just me

Wow. It takes all kinds of vegetables... I won't call any names, just answer honestly. Bob Seager is not anything I would ever play or want to hear, ever. Sorry, but it's true, I put him up there with The Boss and Bruce Willis. The best live album is a no brainer and you will all feel stupid that you didn't remember it right away. I'm not even going to say it yet. Let's see if someone else gets it.

So, we must all agree on what it is?

If someone says Live at Leeds, can someone else counter with Live at the Apollo?

Hell, is Babylon by Bus worse than Europe 72?

Whatever floats your boat - Katmandu led to Ripple in one man's film.

Is Stop Making Sense more cohesive than The Name of this Band? (I'll take Belew).

How The West Was Won ... and where it got us.

OK. Bottle is empty. Good night.

Sorry, you aren't the first person to take my sarcasm the wrong way this week. I'll try to behave. That was kind of the point of my post- there must be hundreds of favorite live albums for this group. I'm sorry, I just can't help myself when someone on the Grateful Dead archives suggests Live Silver Bullet Band or whatever to be the best live album of all time. I have to respond with sarcasm or humor (or failed attempts at humor) to a post like that.

Sorry - didn't mean to come across as the ass I am. It appears we both had the same point.

Also, live albums is a fairly odd concept when we are spoiled with thousands of live shows on this archive.

One worthy of mention - Queen: Live Killers (really).

All is well... Hey you don't seem to be such an ass. I think that a couple of your suggestions might just be my favorites (Babylon by Bus and Live at Leads) too. So many genres make it a tough call. Think how many great live jazz and virtuoso albums we have- McLaughlin, DiMeola, DeLucia live in San Fran kind of stuff. It is really endless...

My Social Studies teacher in middle school played Yessongs for us in 8th grade. Most of the other students paid no attention, but as a wannabe guitar hero my hopes and dreams were shot down by the realization that I could never become remotely as good as Steve Howe.
